    Mall food court.

    I was standing in line at Sbarro checking my pager when I heard her order the "Sausage"

    I looked up and said, "Who, me?"

    We both erupted in laughter. The rest is history.

    Don't joke about Sbarro.

    They own the food court; they damn sure do.

    I had been living in rural Japan for two years, and about a week after I moved back home to Canada, I went out to a pub with a friend. He was literally the first guy to approach me. He spoke English. (Sort of - he's Aussie). After two long years, that was good enough for me, and 14 years later we are married with 2 beautiful little girls.

    We actually met delivering children in kindergarden. I was just ending a long marriage, and feeling pretty low. Then just suddenly I saw this girl, just a blink, and knew I had to see her, so the next couple of days I searched the kindergarden when I delivered or picked up, before I saw her again. We just (I thought I was descrete as hell, and not used to getting attention, so didn't suspected response) looked at each other for a long time. I am way to shy to tolk to a stranger...but apparently she had noticed (and so had half the staff there...) so we started talking...and never stopped. We're celebrating our first aniversary next weekend. AND our daughter ( I have two kids and she has one from previous relationship) is off course attending the same kindergarden, so they have followed us from first time we saw each other.

    He used to race sprint cars. In the winter time, he would keep his racing going by going indoor karting. I worked at that karting place behind the bar. We knew each other for a couple years until we both became single, then all of sudden we looked at each other in a way we never did before. He took me out on a date and we fell crazy in love! A year later he proposed. 6 years later we're still together and we have 3 kids :smile:

    I was dating one of his friends. He was divorcing, I stopped seeing his friend (who was an *rseh*le), and then we didn't see each other for ages, until the evening when I fell out of a train (drunk) and landed almost on top of him waiting on the platform. We swapped numbers, and after becoming friends, started dating, married in Vegas, now have a 17 year old son.

    We met over the summer in my college's weight room (she went to the rival school, but lived in the town where I went to school). She was getting ready for volleyball season while I was getting ready for football. We were the only two people working out at that time of day for several days in a row. I'm not one to disrupt a workout but I figured I would talk to her since we were the only ones there (I certainly didn't want to be rude). I wasn't really interested in pursuing a relationship at the time, I was just trying to be friendly. I approached her and told her I thought she was doing an exercise incorrectly (She told me months later that she was not impressed by this), but agreed that the guy who created her workout probably did not know what he was doing. Our paths continued to cross and we continued to get to know each other and eventually started hanging out in the evenings, outside of the weight room. About 2 years later we were married, and will celebrate our 7 year anniversary in a couple of days. We have a 2.5 year old, one on the way, and could not be happier.

    I met mine on... Tinder! We both were using it strictly as a dating app so it worked out :)

    I dated a friend of his back in the day. I randomly met him the night his son was born, but he was engaged (or maybe even married at that point) so nothing happened. We stayed Myspace/Facebook friends for years. One day he randomly sent me a Facebook message and we started talking, and the rest was history!

    On the job -- he worked for a client of the law firm where I worked at the time. He was a voice on the phone until we met in person (a group lunch between both offices -- non-work related, social only). He was very shy, and I got the nerve to ask him to go with me to a house party that one of the gals I worked with at the law firm was throwing. Dated 1.5 years, engaged 1.5 years, married nearly 28 years.
